You can’t frustrate me, Umahi warns civil servants

THE Minister of Works, David Umahi, has urged civil servants to key into his agenda of providing quality infrastructure for the country, warning that no civil servant has capacity to frustrate his efforts.

The minister, who warned that his file should not spend more than two hours on the table of any official of the ministry, said he was determined to instill discipline and hard work in the system.

Umahi stated this while interacting with contractors and senior civil servants in the ministry.

He said, “No civil servant has the capacity to frustrate me. You can’t keep my file in your office for two hours. You can’t try it,” stressing that he was not answerable to anybody but the Almighty God and President Bola Tinubu.

He charged the civil servants to do things properly as Nigerians were yearning for change and the government cannot afford to disappoint them.

The Minister also likened public funds to cancer, leprosy, HIV/ AIDS and many others, saying who ever misappropriates such under his watch would be cursed.
